  1. John – The Nakba is a myth
    1. The Arab armies forced the Arab farmers off their lands, so those armies could destroy Israel in 1948, promising the farmers their lands back after the war.
    2. In reality, the neighbouring Arab nations were going to keep those lands instead
    3. Once the Arab armies lost, they, the armies, booby trapped the farmers lands, with landmines, salting some of the land – making un-useable.

        • If your grip on reality is as tenuous as your ability to to read a history book, there is no amount of lithium that will help you. You seem to have confused the Nakba with the Six Day war, Even Israelis know the difference between them. Why dont you?

    • You are just making excuses & pathetic ones at that. The nation rejected Him who was their purpose to exist & was told “See! Your house is left to you desolate”. AD 70 was the result of their rejection of God & there has never been any genetic link to salvation. There are plenty of false prophets who claim that there is something special about Israel although they ignore the clear evidence in scripture that Israel refers to God’s people regardless of their nationality.
      The events in Gaza are state-sponsored murder & if you are unwilling to recognise that it makes you culpable as well. History tells us that Jewish aggression after the horrors in Germany started the occupation in what is now Israel & any examination of the area occupied by each side since then shows who the aggressor still is.

    • We ALL know that story, mate, growing up in the same environment. It’s just not true, like the School Journal’s story of the Maori conquering the Moriori in NZ.

      • gaby – Correct. Both Arabs and Jewish communities have lived together for the last 2,000 years within modern day Israel.

      • Buhahaha Gaby spewing your BS & James Heartfield is a far-right zionist supporter use to be a Brexit advocate that regularly writes opinion piece in support of apartheid Israel he definitely not to be taken seriously like you.

      • I’m curious, there’s Somali Jews, Iranian Jews, Syrian Jews, heck even Brazilian Jews and what do they all have in common? they look Somalian, Iranian, Syrian and Brazilian but for some inexplicable reason Ashkenazim Jews from Europe look white in a predominantly Arab land they call Israel. Go figure.

      • David VS Goliath. David was a Jew and Goliath was a Philistine who are recorded in history 6000 years ago living in the great cities of Ashod and Gaza and were fisherman, traders and nomads but hey cool story Bro, needs more dragons!
        Any fool know the historical records conclusively prove that the Israelite’s were the invaders claiming the land was promised to them

        • Nathan, Jews aren’t a race get a fucken grip dude their are arab Jews, Chinese jews, european jews, you can become one aswell look at Ivanka Trump she converted to Judaism.

  2. The nakba…when 6 genocidal Arab armies invaded the fledgling Jewish state, lost the war, and have been whining about it ever since – as well as continuing to lose. The real Nakba was the expulsion of 800,000 Jews from neighbouring Arab countries in an act of vengeful spite. Tiny, beleaguered Israel absorbed them all, but 22 Arab countries couldn’t take in the Arabs told to run by their own leaders.

  3. I was interested to read today that a zionist, Reuven Kahane, had engaged in a vehicle ramming attack targeting anti-genocide protesters in New York.
    Reuven is a US-‘israeli’ dual citizen and a cousin of the notorious Rabbi Meir Kahane, whose terrorist group carried out the vile Ibrahimi Mosque shooting, an attack that (in combination with other zionist propaganda) inspired Brenton Tarrant to carry out the Christchurch mosque shootings.

    I hope that the police are keeping a close eye on any ‘citizens’ of ‘israel’ as they are notoriously prone to committing these disgusting attacks.

  4. The comment section here does speak to the thinness of Left supporters. Gabe and Nathan freely throwing around punches for an idea that, intellectually, is entirely laughable now.

    • For sure they’re historically illiterate and keep referring to Jews as a race same as what Hitler said and we know the results to that ideology

  5. When your job is to defend your country before the whole world against evidence that your country is committing a plausible genocide, bring out a clown size mini paper shredder, a fake poster, accuse most of the countries of the world of being anti-Semites. The purpose of these stunts is to try and overshadow the words of the Palestinian ambassador.

    Following a dignified and heartfelt plea for UN membership by the Palestinian representative detailing his people’s suffering – The Israeli ambassador in reply gave a speech punctuated with weird props, The ambassador for Israel called New Zealand and the other 142 member countries that voted for UN membership for Palestine, “Jew haters”

    Listen to the two speeches here:

  6. I just watched a child’s last breath. Lying on a gurney, bloodied and terrified. Red pools forming under his head. Eyes glazing over with the unmistakable shroud of death. This is Rafah. This is what is happening now.

    And yet, I keep seeing people say they feel “unsafe” because of the mere existence of encampments on university campuses. Feeling unsafe because others are protesting a genocide. And I think about what it actually means to be unsafe. Is there anything more unsafe than being displaced, starved, endlessly bombed, shot at, or buried alive?

    I think of all the universities that have been obliterated in Gaza. Of all the professors that have been slaughtered. How safe are the students who once attended them? I think of the mass graves found in hospital courtyards. Bodies with zip-tied wrists, catheters, medical gowns covered hastily with waste and mud. Bodies of children, old people, the sick and the medical teams who once assisted them. If you’ve done any work in human rights, you understand the horror that the term “mass grave” imbues. They are the absolute markers of atrocity. ”

    The Nazi brutality of Zionist Israel continues without the entire collective power of the major nations of the world stopping it because they are all terrified of the risk of acting.

    I wonder if vicious, sick, rabid Israel has to be allowed to kill the whole population of Palestinians before a proper, commensurate punishment finally destroys that ghastly cancer on humanity.

    I’m sick of Israel and crocodile tears about their victimized existence. They(The Zionist lobbies) totally control the United States to the detriment of the American people. Our leaders clearly love Israel first and perhaps the United States comes in at 15th. Hell Israel could blow NEw York off of the map and Blinken might express mild discomfort. When you meet Bibi and hug him saying I come as a Jew just what outfit are you working for?

    • For sure Jay11 these zionist crocodile tears claiming antisemitism while real potential genocide is taking place proves how complicit western institutions involvement

  7. If I came out as anti-genocide in Gisborne I’d lose half my customers. Good shit! Goats from sheep.

    The only downside would be having to talk politics with’m which I avoid like poison.
